What you'll study

Our Advanced Computer Science MSc is designed to provide you with specialised areas of study so that you can understand and apply the theory and practice of a range of advanced computing topics

Modules

Our Advanced Computer Science MSc covers a wide range of topics; to give you a taster we have expanded on some of the core modules affiliated with this programme and the specific assessment methods associated with each module.

  • Semester 1
  • Semester 2

Semester 1

Advanced Programming (15 credits)

Advanced Programming (15 credits)

The module aims to develop your competence and confidence in their ability to implement an algorithm or a computing system, starting from a design specification, using programming languages widely used in industry and academia.

Building Secure Networks (15 credits)

Building Secure Networks (15 credits)

This module will build your knowledge and understanding of Internet Protocols and design through configuring networks. Laboratory work will give you the opportunity to create their own network using common networking equipment.

Computer Vision and Embedded Systems (15 credits)

Computer Vision and Embedded Systems (15 credits)

The main aim of this module is to introduce you to computer-based understanding, analysis and processing of images taken from a digital camera. The module describes various image processing methods that allow computers to enhance images, segment them into regions of interest, extract suitable features, and classify parts of the image to recognise objects within them. The module also aims to specify and discuss the problems of image understanding and in particular how software tools can be used with embedded approaches.

Semester 2

Cryptography and Secure Systems (15 credits)

Cryptography and Secure Systems (15 credits)

This module builds awareness of the problems of network security, and explores the current best defence strategies, with emphasis on cryptographic techniques and protocols. By the end of the module you will have developed an understanding of how cryptographic algorithms work and how they are applied in protocols for secure Internet connections.

Robotics and Intelligent Systems (15 credits)

Robotics and Intelligent Systems (15 credits)

Explore the relevant concepts of robotics from an AI perspective and acquire the skills for developing learning systems that apply to robotics. The module will build your knowledge of the control architectures for robotics and intelligent systems, world representation and motion planning, robot navigation, robot learning, task planning, multi-robot systems, robotics future directions, safety and other risks of robot systems.

Wireless Networks (15 credits)
